What part of Nj you from bro hopefully not an area where the Bitch Sandy went wild
Seas side heights , Hoboken , Point pleasant and I am sure other areas got messed up big time
Thanks for the concern Moeman
well, not to thread jack lol, but Im from Belleville, right next to Newark, so we got hit of course but not nearly as bad as the places you listed, basicly for my area, besides power loss, it was only slightly worse than usual, still flooded right along the passaic river. but for my area water wasnt really the issue.. the massive winds were, lots of power lines down, big trees ripped completely out of the ground, roots dirt and all..
im not quite sure why exactly, but the transformers were exploding all over, me and my brother walked outside to see, and at least once a minute if not more, you could see blue lights illuminate the sky as they blew up, i think i high voltage power line went down somewhere by me because i saw the sky light up super bright white then glow orange...but at least from what i saw we were very very lucky....most places by me have power back already
however as you listed, not sure if their showing the pictures on the news or telling of the extensive damage on the west coast, but seaside has been obliterated.....the piers were basically washed to sea, that entire area was pretty much demolished, the boardwalk at point pleasant is gone. at least half of manhattan had flooding, hobooken also had extensive flooding, my one friend who lives right near the river said he cant go back for like 5 weeks, LBI was almost reclaimed... my friend who lives in staten island said they were hammered too, a quote from what he said on my other forum " One house, about 3 blocks away from me, was knocked off its foundation and taken out sea, killing most of the people living in it...an oil tanker washed up on shore on the north shore of Staten Island.."
oh also, i forget the name of the place, but their was a gas main break that they couldnt even reach because of the damage, and i heard on the radio that it was just burning for hours
and thats just from what ive seen or heard
i think really the most difficult thing now after its over, is the gas issues, over 40% of the stations in nj alone are not operational which makes it extremely difficult to get gas, stations have huge lines and nj just reimplemented the 70's evens/ odds rules for gas to try to ease the lines...of course it doesnt help that stations hiked up the prices by at minimum 60 cents a gallon
ill post pictures if you guys havent really seen the damage, but most things you can really just see by googling it
just sucks and i feel for the people that were really affected by it.
